Galaxy Note Things to Remember

Part of Samsung Galaxy Note For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The Samsung Galaxy Note is so powerful and multifunctional that it can seem overwhelming. Keep this assortment of handy, time-saving tricks in mind to boost your Galaxy Note productivity (or your hopeless addiction to your new Galaxy Note phone):

  • Lock the phone when you’re on a call: Press the Power Lock button. The screen goes dark, and the touchscreen turns off. That way, you can talk without fearing that something will touch the screen and mess things up.

  • Dictation! You can speak into the phone as an effective and quick alternative to using the onscreen keyboard.

  • Use the Swype keyboard for rapid text entry.

  • Press and hold a key on the onscreen keyboard to confirm that your stubby fingers have selected the correct character.

  • Spread your fingers to zoom into a web page, where it’s much easier to click on links.

  • Quickly put the Galaxy Note into Vibrate mode by pressing the Down Volume button until the phone jiggles.

  • When downloading updates or new apps, or for faster web browsing, activate the Galaxy Note’s Wi-Fi.

  • Use the Search soft button to look for things on the phone, on the Internet, or in a specific app.
